Calling All Knitters

Yes, I gone to the “dark side” and am now quilting and knitting. Who knew? But really I like the portability of knitting as I can easily bring projects with me in the car, on trips, etc. And after my last experience of forgetting my entire quilt project on a quilt retreat (who does that?), my knitting project saved the day as I had something to work on. Is it me, or do other people do silly things like that?

Eek!

Anyway, click on the image above to head to Craftsy and check out their Memorial Day sale items, and knitting classes.

Enjoy!

Yep, Going Over to the Darkside!

Knitting? What’s that you say? Oh nooooo…..!!!!

Yes, I’m finally going to experiment with knitting. Seems like a good thing to learn while I have some “down time.” Good for my brain. And what pretty red yarn, eh?

I’ve always been inspired by the great knitters in my quilt group (I’m talking about YOU…Teri, Virginia, Mari, Joyce, Julie….!!) So I thought it was time I give it a go. Don’t know if I’ll like it, or even be good at it, but now is the time. And what cool phrases and words I’ll get to know, like: “cast on” and “purl.” It’s a whole new world!

My husband grew up with a mom and four sisters who ALL knitted, so he said he could show me how. There is also bluprint for online classes if I get stuck. Maybe I should grab the TV remote now?

Wish me luck!
